Courses Repeated Policy

A student who has received a grade of "C-" or below in a course may repeat the course under the following conditions:

  1. Courses may be repeated only by courses taken at BSC or at the same college/university where the courses were originally taken.
  2. Before a course taken elsewhere may be repeated, the Records Office and the chair of the appropriate department must approve the choice of the course to be taken.
  3. Registration for repeated courses must be processed in the Records Office rather than online.

Registration Instructions for Contracts

All contracts, tutorials, and individualized courses ending with 93, 97, 99 must be registered through the Contract Learning Center and should be entered on a separate course plan form. The deadline for registering for contracts (except internships) is the same as other courses.

Schedule Changes After Registration

A student who has pre-registered for a term, may add or drop courses on the confirmation registration dates. After that time, schedule changes are made through the Records Office. A fee is charged for each change after the second week of class unless the change is at the request of the College. Schedule changes after the first week of class require the signature of the instructor on a hard copy registration form. No course can be added after the first two weeks of a regular term (fall and spring) or after the first week of a summer term.


ROTC courses and registration instructions  for ROTC Classes at Samford University (Air Force) and UAB (Army) can be obtained in the Academic Records office.
